8/23/2014 12:17:28 PM There should be a website for friends seeking friends.  I have two kids of my own, but I have an amazing support system to help when I want to do something fun.  My kids are 6 and 7 (nearly 8) and both are starting to enjoy the sports we do: skiing (we started them skiing, no judge) and mountain biking.  They are enjoying the easy NW blue runs and are just starting with small rock sections on their mountain bikes.  There are a few things better than seeing your kids succeed.  I love it when they love the sports we enjoy because that means we get to enjoy them more.  
8/23/2014 12:09:13 PM My husband and my snowboards stolen out of the garage a few months ago.  Mine was a board that I just bought at the end of the season and rode twice.  I guess I considered it a good demo because I ended up getting the same one in the summer.  The bindings on there were from the Sierra Snowboard blowout.  I was so bummed. On a positive note, I ended up getting the same snowboard because I loved it so much, and I was able to upgrade my Lexa's to newer ones with the padding over the footbeds.  My husband is upgrading to a newer board and is testing out bindings until he decides what kind of new bindings to get.
8/3/2014 9:44:36 PM i have been eyeing Mammoth...there are definitely still good deals. There are some pretty cheap stuff out there so worth talking to an agent to see how much you would have to eat if you made it a year round vacation home/rental.[/QUOTE] Consider renting it out when you're not there... Air BnB or something?
8/2/2014 7:55:10 PM My husband and I snowboard.  My kids, ages 6 and 7, learned to ski and not snowboard because at the time, they didn't have snowboarding classes for little, little ones.  I think that may have been the case for some.  Besides, snowboarding is no longer the NEWEST thing.   I will allow my kids to pick whatever they want to do, as long as it's for a season.  I'm not interested in buying two sets of gear for them.  I personally like the fact that they're skiing.  They're able to stand up on their own and get themselves around without too much difficulty. I know I may be off in posting this here, but that's the way it is.
7/29/2014 11:40:33 PM Just went to a Seattle Mariners versus Mets game with my kids, 6 and 7. It was great to have them finally understanding the sport. It didn't peak their interest for long but I hope to have future baseball fans to share the sport with.
7/29/2014 11:35:48 PM I am in the process of reading The Pillars of the Earth. It is an interesting book about building churches and cathedral. It's non-fiction to try to keep your interest. It's good but I think the book could've been condensed down from over 1000 pages to 500. Still plugging along though.
4/23/2012 10:15:12 AM This is absolutely amazing!!! What a great experience for him.I got to do this once at a Seattle Mariner's game, as an adult (picked at random from the state employees that bought tickets for that game).  We had just the right number of people in our party, 5.  So very lucky.It was funny because they looked at me and told me that I didn't have to be on the pitchers mound if I didn't think I could throw it the entire way.  I said I'd be just fine (as I played softball in college just a few years earlier).  I ended up throwing it to the mascot... He didn't see it too well, it bounced off his head and hit a camera man in the leg. There are just some experiences in life you just never forget.  I hope that is one for your kid!!!
4/23/2012 10:08:52 AM Uhhhhhh, does she want to get paid???? Time for the boss to go in there and tell her that she quit which means she does NOT come back to work.  Unless, is she volunteering her time?
4/23/2012 10:01:30 AM Okay, I have something similar.  It's the 1st generation Joplin???  First thing with the one you showed me, the click positions are pretty sweet.  I have unlimited range of motion on mine, but I usually ride with it in two positions.  One is for riding on fire roads where I don't need to be clearing things on the trail.  The other position is my regular ride position.  I haven't felt like I've needed a third position, but I don't go on really steep downhills....Second, mine is the hydraulic version.  It is tough to raise and lower the seatpost.  The lever on mine is really quite tough to press and activate.  I don't think it's as intuitive as they state, but I haven't ridden this bike long.  It may get more intuitive as I ride longer. I got mine on my bike.  I am not sure I would buy one as they usually run at least $200.  With your discount; however, it doesn't look like it'd be all that bad of a deal... I think once you try it, you won't go back.  Oh, I got it on my 2008 Specialized Safire.  I upgraded over the winter and am loving the difference!  I went from a hard tail bottom of the line mountain bike to this one, and I'm so happy with it! Looking forward to go out more (both road and mtn) soon.  I have a 62 mile ride on Sunday in preparation for my Seattle to Portland ride (mid July, 2-100+ mile days).  Wish me luck as I believe it'll be the furthest I've been on a bike!!!! 
4/23/2012 9:38:07 AM My heart goes out to you!  I am so sorry that his battle is over and you have to deal with the BS that comes next.Please let me/us know if there's anything you need... an ear of support?I am so sorry for your loss!
4/2/2012 12:58:14 AM I love that it took you to watch that documentary to realize our health care system sucks.  I love that if you go to a doctor with zero insurance, you will get charged 50-70% of what the cost would be if they billed insurance.  After dealing with insurance for my family for a few years now, I realize how ridiculous it is.  I was billed over $8 grand to have a kid (that was on insurance!!!!!) and have my tubes tied in one foul swoop.  This is after both my doctor and I called to verify the insurance would cover at that particular hospital.  Well, it turns out they wouldn't cover that hospital and they are "sorry" for the inconvenience.  It only took me 2 years to pay off having my daughter and I was being proactive with the payments.  I can't imagine people that are struggling more than I am being able to pay that off.  On the other side of the coin, my sister in law was in the hospital for 70 days before she had her kid (to keep it in long enough for it to survive).  After all was said and done, it was a $200 bill (WHAT!?!?!).  The discrepancy in insurance is painful!!! Now that is something they should be offering to everyone for free... you plan on tying your tubes and no longer procreating??? Go for it!!!  Sorry, my personal belief that kids cost a fortune in regular well child check ups alone.  We don't need people with 12 kids just because they don't know how to wrap it up... 
4/2/2012 12:09:46 AM I have recently cut off 8 inches off my hair for locks of love (in January) and am absolutely loving the short hair.  I couldn't get the full 10 inches required for them to do a hair piece, so I hope they can sell it for something.  I was going absolutely nuts.  There were many days I just wouldn't brush my hair because of all the knots in it.I am also growing out my daughter's hair in hopes that we'll be able to donate her hair.  Right now, it's at around 7 inches.  I'm not sure though.  It's beginning to be a struggle to brush her hair now.  We'll see.  I might just want that extra time in the morning with short hair. It was cute as soon as I cut my hair though, my son wanted to grow his hair out and donate his to a boy with cancer.  I have such sweet kids sometimes....
4/1/2012 6:18:51 PM I need to wait longer between cuts.... Or start having my mom cut it again... Ugh.  I really loved that time!
4/1/2012 5:30:58 PM I think you've officially lost it, although if I knew more about bikes, that'd be a great business here in Portland.  Bikes are always going for much more than they're worth.  I have two bikes to sell right now, but got to strip it first.  Want to take all the good parts and put it on the new bike.
